Development and construction of a mobile measurement system to test strategies for the optimization of voltage quality in the low voltage grid

In this project measurements in the low voltage grid in Schleswig-Holstein are executed. These measurements involve derivation of voltage quality in terms of pollution of harmonic voltage and grid impedance measurements. There will also be measurements for active filter functionality of grid-connected converters of renewables. [read more]The project task of the Chair of Power Electronics is the development of a special mobile measurement system that will be used for AF measurements and grid impedance estimation. The project will benefit from the cooperation with FH Kiel and the partners from industry. The main findings of the project will be useful for guidelines and codes for the connections of converters for renewable to the low voltage grid.

Research

  • Our research is focused on the design of high efficient and reliable PWM-based power converter architectures (single-cell, multi-cell, multilevel), their modelling and control to exploit commercial as well as new power semiconductor devices with minimum over design.
    We develop controllers for electric drives and we are particularly skilled in the integration of renewable energy systems into the electric grid.
